The history of Nintendo hardware in a stylish, animated highlight reel

By 11.30.12

The Wii U just came out in Europe, so to celebrate, someone decided to serve up a look back at the history of Nintendo’s hardware in the form of a rather nifty animated package.

The above, which was highlighted by Kotaku, is mostly applicable to us in the States. We generally got stuff here around the same time as they got theirs. Except for the Super Nintendo, which arrived a year in advance for them.

Not only that, but the design of their hardware was based upon the much cooler Japanese version, whereas we had one made just for us. Which was all right, but the original flavor is still far superior (and has stood the test of time better as well).

About Matt Hawkins... Matt Hawkins is an NYC based video game journalist, designer, consultant, and cultralist. He's been published in EGM, Kotaku, and MSNBC amongst others. Matt also makes comics and zines, is obsessed with cable access, gets into arguments with homeless people all the time, and once had his nipple bitten off during a one night stand. But that's neither here nor there.
